You've got borrowers and spenders in Washington debating how much they will continue to borrow and spend.
No one wants to lend the US money so they are now lending it to themselves.
It seems clear that while many Americans claim they want fiscal responsibility, they really don''t. The United States is screwed for many years to come and may never recover to the nation the world once knew.
Despite the greatest armies in the world, with stockpiles of nuclear weapons, the United States couldn't protect themselves from within. Now they are turning on each other, as well as their grandchildren (those who survive the astounding abortion rates anyway) because they couldn't behave like responsible adults. The once great United States, like Britain, will become a common study of how democracies perish.
